Playing around with possible Raj photo directions in Paint.  Came up with these.  Any mistakes?

Your orientation for the poles in pics #15 and #16 doesn't fit my 3D reconstruction, but I'm not 100% sure about it anyway until someone else verifies my method (mentioned here, here and here).

Hi Nekitamo,

Thanks for the reply.  We are very close on the 16-17.  I like your 3D render for 15.  For that reason I will have to make an adjustment.  One of the small differences we have is because you are figuring 282 degrees for the sun and I'm doing 274.  The reason I am is because the naval chart does not adjust for daylight savings time.  Of course we have no way to know if the camera was adjusted.

I guess I'm still holding out some hope that some clues may be in the photos to give away the location.  It's very aggravating that there are no landmarks shown.  This may be on purpose.


Edit:  I have made the adjustment to Pict 15.

How about this possible scenario?  Maybe the house/building in pict 15 is the next door neighbor's house?

We were eating dinner on the back porch when we noticed this "object" sort of hovering in the sky. The camera was still out from earlier so I grabbed it and tried to get some clear shots of it. It took off over the roof shortly after, so I ran into the street in front of the house to follow,

Adjusted Pict 15 again to reflect Spf's analysis.
